Hugh Elam Henderson (1819 - 1885)

Family Record


Note: I received copies of this family record with the pages stapled together into several family groups. I have made a separate web page for each stapled group and have tried to format these web pages similar to the appearance of the typed pages. Some of the pages were typed in a small type font and the others in a large type font -- it appears to me to be 2 separate records, the older being typed with the larger type font (ca the older 10 point "pica" type font), the more recent being typed with the smaller type font (ca the older 12 point "elite" type font).

Both types were interleaved together, making the records appear duplicated; but I believe it is just an older and newer record. For ease of reading on these pages, I have sized the type font according to how it appears on the page & in addition, colored the large type font yellow.

My notes or items I had difficulty reading are enclosed in curly brackets { }.

Handwritten notes on my copy are indicated by being enclosed in square brackets [ ] and colored light purple.

HUGH ELAM HENDERSON

We know that Hugh Elam Henderson served in the Civil War.  A descendant of Hugh Elam Henderson said that he was a guard for the Union soldiers in Salisbury.  While in service Elam contacted {sic} T. B. and was ill for a number of years.

We see by the census that Elam Henderson was living near his brother Williams {sic} and his sister Jane Shield {sic s/b Shields} in 1860.  He is listed as a farmer.

Elam and his wife were members of Ramah Pres. Church and are listed on the session book.  They have a child buried there but his burial place is unknown.

A granddaughter of Elam described him as being 6 ft. tall, dark brown curly hair and dark eyes.

Hugh Elam (called Elam) has many descendants in the Huntersville, N. C. area, one of which was postmistress of Huntersville Post Office for many years.  (This information furnished by Katie Hair Cathey (Mrs. Adrian Cathey, {street address removed for privacy}, Charlotte, N. C.) Mrs. Hair is a granddaughter of Hugh Elam Henderson.
